No reservations for the first floor, as you may know. Saturday night, 5:45, all seats were full, with a 90 minute wait for a table for three! (They open at 5:30.) Reminded me of the old days at Pearl! Did get seated at about 7:20.
Can go into more detail about the food if desired, but the plateau (called a "platter" here) was worth the wait, easily measuring up to Balthazar's and blowing away lesser lights like Lure.
